The Shah of Iran approached Maserati with a request in 1958 for a 3500 GT fitted with a 450 S racing engine. Since the Maserati's entire team of 450 S cars having been obliterated in racing accidents, the company decided that this would be a good solution for some of the spare engines. Three 450 S-powered road cars were built for special clients. Thus, the 5000 GT was born and would eventually reach a production run of 34 bespoke automobiles.

This particular example was built for Briggs Cunningham who requested that the 5000 GT resemble the 450 S upon which its engineering had been based. Michelotti created the design, incorporating 430 S cues including to the rounded curves of its fenders. It had a glass linear greenhouse, ventilation scoops with decorative chrome 'strakes' tucked behind the front wheel arches, and a semi-tapered rear deck. There were hidden headlamps flanking a small oval grille opening.

This car was reportedly the most aerodynamic 5000 GT built. Its lines were developed in the wind tunnel at Università degli Studi di Torino.

After Cunningham tested the car at Monza, he used it to commute between various European race tracks at which his team was competing. By 1968, it had been relocated to Cunningham's home base in California, then to Oliver Kuttner of Virginia, who in 1988 offered it for sale. It was subsequently restored in the early 1990s in Europe, making its way to Poland, where in 1998 it was acquired by Alfredo Brener. In 2003, the car entered the care of its present owner.

Currently, the odometer reflects 66,693 miles.
